    Doug - Do you have another one in you? Those of us who have gone have loved it, thank you. So, to kick it off, any weekend or location in the hopper for this year? Thanks.

    What's the hot tub situation looking like? Also will there be any awesome boy bands to share the hotel with?

    Those two questions should not be asked in the same post.

    We expect this year to be to your liking on both of those items.

    What!? To the best of my knowledge, no boy bands unless you guys are forming one.

    If don't know what would scare me more. Sharing the hotel with the girls following a real boy band, or seeing the band that Rolo puts together.

    Is this a good place to lobby for speakers? After last year's conference I was sent an email asking who I would like to see at a future conference. The three names I gave were:

    Bjorn Nyland - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG1QcV31eoSaX4rE8avQL4A
    Nikki Gordon--Bloomfield of Transport Evolved News - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC675NhQ4EU5TzwCMwYp5XCw
    Robert Llewellyn of Fully Charged (and Kryten on Red Dwarf) - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzz4CoEgSgWNs9ZAvRMhW2A

    At the time, all three of these were in Europe, but Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield recently moved to Oregon. I pinged her to gauge her interest in coming to TMC and her reply was: "I would love to come, but our budget is pretty tight…" and "If someone wants to officially invite me, I’d love to come in exchange for a bed and some food. ;)". You can see the thread here: Steve Nahm on Twitter:

    I think she would be a good draw to the conference, and could speak on the overall alternate transport environment, and the role Tesla is playing in moving that forward.

    Of course Bjorn and Robert would both be fun to have at the conference. But we can certainly have Nikki join us with a little support.

    Doug - Would you be up for giving away the city TMC Connect '16 will be in so those of us coming in from out of town can pick an airport and perhaps accommodations on either side of the event? Thanks! Going to Model 3 Reveal?

    Surely the location has been determined at this point - yes?

    I asked Björn and said he received an invite and is coming to the Model 3 reveal.

    Of course. We're just not ready to open registration and announce the specifics yet. However, I will say that we're in SoCal this year.

    That airport would most likely be LAX.

    I'd certainly like to go to the Model 3 event if someone gets an invite and can to bring me as a guest. I plan to put down a deposit.
